The Random - Hyperion, Iron Man 2, Gulliver's Travels, Cloud Atlas, Rambo V, Resident Evil, The Flash

Scott Derrickson (The Day The Earth Stood Still) to direct Dan Simmons' Hyperion Cantos. Beware the Shrike!

Variety is reporting that Emily Blunt and Jason Segel are both in negotiations to join 20th Century Fox's Gulliver's Travels comedy that will star Jack Black. Emily Blunt was rumored to appear as Black Widow in Iron Man 2 - apparently not anymore. "Fox holds an option on the actress that was part of her deal when she co-starred in The Devil Wears Prada, and the studio may invoke it to see that she takes part in the giant tale."

Tom Tykwer said "I'm trying to adapt a novel called Cloud Atlas, which is a novel by David Mitchell that I'm really completely excited about. And I'm sitting down with the Wachowski Brothers and trying to adapt that for a screenplay. It's very interesting." More here.

ExtraTV have the news on Rambo V. Stallone says "Yeah, we are doing another Rambo, but the conflict is whether to do it in America or a foreign country…"

The next Resident Evil film will be set in Alaska. JoBlo reports that Patrick Tatopoulos in charge of the creature effects. Michael Lantieri has also been hired as the special effects supervisor, and the report regarding the script is that the location is to be Alaska and it's a lot darker than the previous films.

IESB is claiming that they know for certain that screenwriter Dan Mazeau is currently working on a Flash script for Warner Brothers.

Where did Tom Tykwer say that about "Cloud Atlas?"
I have read the novel and now I am extremely interested in this, especially since the Wachowski Brothers might be involved.
